SOAP AND THE ACID MANTLE
Have you ever noticed how dry your skin can feel after washing your hands? If so, you may be using soap with the wrong pH. Most over-the-counter soaps have a pH around 9 or 10 which is very high and similar to bleach or alkaline household cleaners. Water, a neutral substance, has a pH of 7. All soap is slightly alkaline, but when the pH of soap is too high, it damages the protective layer on your skin called the acid mantle, which is a very fine film that maintains its own slightly acidic pH of 5.5. This surface layer is created by the body’s natural acidic secretions. It protects the skin from bacteria, infections, allergic reactions, and dehydration by acting as a barrier to these elements. When this protective barrier is destroyed by harsh soap or other skin products with an overly alkaline pH, your skin is left vulnerable while the body regenerates this protection again. It can take anywhere from 2 to 36 hours to fully regenerate the skin’s acid mantle. Therefore, it is important to use soaps and other body care products that are pH balanced to be as close to neutral as possible, like Marilyn Farm’s Garden Soap, which has a pH of 7.5
